Government officials have issued a warning to the makers of the inhalable caffeine product AeroShot, in response to pressure from Senator Charles Schumer.
The Food and Drug Administration says AeroShot's maker is misleading consumers, labeling the product as a "dietary supplement" while at the same time calling it inhalable.
The FDA says it is concerned about AeroShot's safety and noted a discrepancy in age recommendations.
The warning letter comes after Schumer urged the FDA to crack down on the product, concerned about its possible use by teens in combination with alcohol.
Aeroshot's maker says it will cooperate with the FDA.
